KC High School Cancel Classes After Bomb Threat
KANSAS CITY - Classes have been canceled for the day at a Kansas City high school after someone called in a bomb threat that was later determined to be bogus.
Kansas City Public Schools spokesman Andre Riley says authorities searched Northeast High School early Wednesday and found no bomb after the threat was phoned in to 911. The school has about 1,100 students.
The Kansas City Star reports that the school's buses were already en route so arriving students were moved to the football field after the threat.
School officials decided to cancel classes and send students home rather than have them wait until the building was determined safe.
